Overview of catalyst performance analyzer (CPA) system HT Reactor System
CPA

*Includes a fully computerized CPA sfotware
HT Reactor System

*On Left: Side-view of HT reactor block- On Right: (A)array channel microreactor; (B)heated capillary samping probe; (C)gas chromatography and mass spec analysis (see images below); (D)catalysts; (E)temperature-controlled stainless steel heating block; (F)thermal insulation
Array channel microreactor for HT experimentation Micro-jet liquid dispensing system for HT catalyst preparation by impregnation
CPA

*When sealed, each channel in the microreactor is separated, allowing for sampling of effluent gas from each individual catalyst.
HT Reactor System

*Liquid dispensing system
Gas Chromatography(GC) and Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry(QMS) for rapid catalyst evaluation High-throughput pulsed laser ablation (PLA) system to produce metal nanoparticles
CPA

*GC is equipped with thermal conductivity detector (TCD) and two parallel 10 m columns for high sensitivity, rapid catalyst evaluation. QMS (Stanford Research Systems) is capable of ultra-fast gas sampling and analysis.
HT Reactor System

*PLA system consists of 20 rotatable targets for combinatorial nanoparticle catalyst preparation, and 30 substrates for enhanced throughput.
